Auria's Malaysian Kitchen
Kaya is a rich, creamy spread for toast made from coconut milk, cane sugar and cage-free eggs. The mixture is slow-cooked for hours following a traditional method and yields a smooth, scrumptious delight that can be used in many ways. Fresh Pandan leaves are used to add flavor and the all-natural green color. Try it as a filling for cakes, pastries, crepes. Use it in recipes that call for jams or jellies to add the exotic flavors of Asia to your baking. Dairy and gluten-free.
In 2015, I met Auria at the Summer Fancy Food Show in Manhattan and fell for her charming personality and her amazing Malaysian condiment line. RLC was still finding its footing and I did not add the product to the collection, but knew I eventually would. Fast forward to 2018, when I get the list of sofi award winners and see Auria's name pop up not once, but twice! I immediately emailed her and ordered a case of everything she makes. The flavors are authentic, not dumbed down to make it more marketable and while some describe her products as "weird," we all know that that's exactly the kind of stuff I am drawn to and add to the shop. And, we all know that I'm literally putting my name behind everything Riley/Land carries, so there's not a clunker in the bunch.

I had no idea what this was before I was a customer of Riley/Land Collection. I was missing out! It's sweet, custardy flavor is so good on toast or even to dip a shortbread cookie into as an afternoon snack. My friend and neighbor who has a Malaysian dad saw that I had it in my kitchen and was so excited that I had to order one for her as well. Needless to say, it was a big hit!
